Request For Proposal: Eliza Bryant Village Seeks Strategic Planning Consultant
Eliza Bryant Village is seeking a Strategic Planning Consultant to conduct a comprehensive, action-oriented strategic plan that will advance our mission and help us remain viable for many years to come.
Over the past few years, we have experienced a steady decline in our nursing home census, which makes up the majority of our earned revenue. This decline is in line with national trends for nursing home occupancy, with the latest occupancy numbers at 81.6% according to the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care Skilled Nursing Data Support. Moreover, our payer mix has changed over the years in a way that has caused strain on our operating budget. The vast majority of our nursing home residents are Medicaid-eligible, with fewer being referred for skilled nursing, paid by Medicare, a higher reimbursement source. We understand that we cannot sustain this business model and need to be thoughtful and creative to continue to advance the mission of service to this community for which we were founded – – “to provide quality service, outreach programs and a dignified, compassionate and secure environment for seniors.”
If you are interested in helping plan for our future, please see the RFP below and follow the instructions outlined in the document.
